my very first post, so nice to meet you all and I look forward to becoming active in the forum.
I just purchased a second-hand FreeWave STB 2018. Started to go through adjusting the foot straps ect.. and yep checked the vent plug and there was no washer. I have some 8 x 2 washers so put another one on. I weighed the board on some bathroom scales and it is 7.7kg (staps and fins attached) 6.8kg is shown on the website. It is about 40% humidity here so I have put the board in a room with the vent open to see if any moisture gets sucked out. I then spoke to my friend how helped me purchase it and she told me to, to my surprise, that two of her slalom boards do not have washers. And she is no beginner, she competes in the pwa so I am kind of confused.
Does the FreeWave require a washer?
Should I be at all worried about this?
Thank you very much. 😀
